Idea 3. Office Halloween Party Banner

Don’t want to deprive your employees of all the fun? Transform your office into a “haunted” venue on Halloween. Get a welcoming UV-resistant step and repeat banner with your company logo and scary Halloween graphics.

Idea 4. Top-Notch University Halloween Celebration Banner

Every university party has a photoshoot venue. Create a dark corner with themed banners made of durable fabric. Since the fabric doesn’t reflect the light of the camera flash, you'll have quality photos to remember the day. Place your fabric Halloween banner either indoors or outdoors. As for the design, pick any background and go with the sing-song rhythm of Shakespeare, like we did in the picture below, or write your favorite riddle. Take a look at these Halloween backdrops in different styles to find more fun and creepy ideas.

Halloween Party Banners for Public Events

Idea 1. Halloween Event Banner for Restaurants

Do you own a restaurant, winery or a café and want people around to celebrate Halloween? What’s better than a Halloween sale banner? Get X-stand banners or sandwich boards to list Halloween specials and grab the attention of potential clients. You can as well place a traditional pumpkin Halloween banner to keep the spirit. Order these banners to cut down the costs of decorations! Keep the stand construction after the holiday and reuse it for upcoming events.

Idea 2.  Scary Festival Banner 

A huge festival needs a matching announcement! Mesh banner is the winner here. The weaved material of the banner is designed to withstand harsh winds, which makes it perfect for open-air events. Whether you’re hosting a costume festival or a parade, get one to attract passers-by from a distance!

Halloween Banner Design in Different Styles 

Already made up your mind about a Halloween banner type, then it’s time to pick a style. Decide on the style using the following Halloween banner ideas. 

Creepy Halloween Banners

Halloween is all about ghosts, wizards and witches. So, it’s no surprise creepy Halloween banners are the most widespread of all. Use black, white or red to ensure spookiness and “bloody” prints.

Cute Halloween Banners

Kids will absolutely love thematic graphics with adorable Halloween characters on a fabric banner. Have a look at our Halloween sign templates to get inspired before you proceed.

Bonus Idea: Combine creepiness and cuteness in a single Halloween banner. Order double-sided retractable banners also known as roll-up stands. Keep the perfect balance by displaying creepy graphics on one side and something cute on the other side. Add a finishing touch to the decor with cutouts of various eerie and adorable characters made from foam board printing or gator board printing. Find inspiration from our free artworks.
